Along with re-installing any applications. Yes, it's a minor hassle, but you'll get the absolute best performance out of the N97 this way and will be free of v21 system detritus.

You can backup to card inside File manager, or you can use Ovi Suite or PC Suite. Just be sure, in each case, not to restore 'Settings' - let the new OS build up its own system files and you'll have a much smoother ride..
I would suggest doing a hard reset and restore, without Settings.
